The Maver MV-R Performance Pole comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.


TESTED to the limit on commercials and rivers, Maver’s new MV-R Performance pole is available in 13 and 14.5 m lengths.

This top-level pole has been designed to be the perfect all-rounder, whatever type of venue you fish.

It will handle carp with ease when fitted with 18-20 Maver Dual Core Pro elastic, and it’ll deliver in spades on rivers, too.

Maver has tested them successfully on rivers, fishing a long line for roach, where vigorous strikes are needed to hook them successfully.

Based on their Signature pole mandrel, it’s manufactured from high-tensile carbon fibre, STER resins, using Nanolith technology and has a Suncore anti-friction finish.

All this equates to a pole that not only has all the wall strength you need to handle fish, but is also easy to ship in and out.

Any experienced angler will appreciate how well balanced and stiff it is, along with how quickly it reacts and recovers.

Thanks to Fusion technology (the fusing of high-modulus carbons), the top kits are ultra rigid, which is exactly what you want for hitting lightning-fast bites.

Maver’s Magic Steps feature (Teflon-coated inner ‘steps’ in the top sections) ensures that the elastic system is silky smooth.

There’s a Match Kit inside the pole, a slotted and bushed Powerlite Power Kit, two slotted and bushed Commercial Power Kits, a mini extension, a cupping kit, pole cups, three EVA caps, a pole holdall and protective tubes.

That’s a tidy package, I think you’ll agree.

Prices: 14.5 m £899.99; 13 m £799.99.
